Green Diary Events - April 2019


Imbolc - Festival of Awakening

Our ancestors celebrated 8 points in the year using them as a framework for their lives. The "Wheel of the Year" combines the astronomical cycle of the solstices and equinoxes, with the turning points of each season, marked by the Celts with the 4 Cross Quarter festivals, formerly known as the 4 Great Fire Festivals; Imbolc, Beltain, Lammas and Samhain. In the past huge community bonfires were lit on hilltops, uniting communities in common focus and celebration of their lives and the earth.

Imbolc falls between the Winter Solstice and the Spring Equinox and celebrates the beginning of Spring. The earth is no longer still but stirring. What has been curled up begins to unfurl. It is time to move forward and become active once again.
